Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom to debut at Walt Disney World

It has been announced today on the Disney Parks blog that the Magic Kingdom will experience quests, muck akin to EPCOT's Kim Possible attraction in the World Showcase:

"Today, we’re thrilled to share plans for a new role-playing adventure coming to Walt Disney World called Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. This is going to be fun – and it’s all happening inside the park. Merlin the magician will recruit guests to become apprentice sorcerers and then help them with maps and clues that show where and how to defeat an army of Disney villains."

The quest will launch in 2012 and it looks to be based in Adventureland. So what's the thoughts on this? Have you played Kim Possible? I'm looking forward to this new way of experiencing the parks, and if it's anything like KP then I'm all aboard.

Extremely excited about this! I'm a huge Kim Possible (the game not the TV show). My only thought is that it's a shame it's only being contained to one land. I'd love to play all over the park.

From the drawing it looks like the quest will have an interactive card. Unlike KP where guests use mobiles, this new attraction looks to be heading the same way as Midship Detective Agency onboard the Disney Dream. It'll be interesting to see if this new style of attraction will make it's way across other Disney parks and potentially Aulani.

I did the Kim Possible game once; it was awful. I think the Merlin game will fail, too.

We had a blast with the Kim Possible adventures at Epcot, so I am sure these new games will be a hoot as well. I look forward to the addition!

My daughter dragged my wife and I to do Kim Possible at Epcot this year, and it ended up being one of our biggest positive surprises of the trip. We'll definitely be looking forward to any similar new experiences in future.

I'm surprised how few comments there are on this. But I'm extremely glad there is something like this. I know it will be the better version of the Kim Possible, which now seems prototype-ish. It will give MK another edge above other theme parks while still going back to the basic idea of the Disney parks...interactive experience into thematic genres, rather than rides being the focus.
